Modern Warfare 3 Launches With Promotional Blitzkrieg

If
you’re a video gamer of any type or creed, unless you’ve been hiding in a
Siberian cave for the last few months, you’ll have noticed that a new Call of
Duty game was on the way.  Well, the wait
is over. Modern Warfare 3 was released
yesterday amidst a wave of hyperbolic press and claims of it being “the most
anticipated video game in history” (courtesy of Gamestop executive Bob
McKenzie).


As
well as the actual game, Activision are proudly touting a “revolutionary” new
social gaming network entitled Call of
Duty Elite
, which is intended to “bring Call
of Duty
 gamers together in a cohesive, fan-focused
environment like no other.”  The
idea is to provide Call of Duty players with a one-stop place to manage their
gaming. They can connect with friends, plan match-ups, look at statistics and
more.  The system will also play host to
a TV channel, with the programming schedule kicking off with a show entitled “Friday
Night Fights” (which will show real-life CoD
rivals battling it out in multiplayer) this Friday, on the 11th
of November.


Battlefield
3’s online issues have been widely documented elsewhere, so here’s the biting
question for any Call of Duty players
out there who are currently getting stuck into the game: Is Call of Duty Elite better than Battlelog?
